Poggio Sant’Elia

Strada Vicinale-Stradella Corvino, Trepuzzi, (Lecce)

A short distance from Squinzano, heading south-west, we will see the Poggio Sant'Elia, a destination for walking and hiking. Important Basilian  grange, houses the foundations of a church dedicated to the prophet Elijah and a convent sold in 1575 to the Capuchins. Embankment of the so-called Serra Salento, we find the fourteenth century church of Our Lady of the High, shaped as basilica, restored in the seventies and now in a state of abandonment.

(From a text of Prof. Angelo Cappello)
